Method Man took a trip down memory lane during a recent interview.
The hip-hop legend appeared on Math Hoffa’s podcast and spoke on his 2009 beef with retired OG rapper Joe Budden.
Hip Hop Wired points out, “Raekwon’s peoples actually roughed up Budden in San Bernardino, Calif. over his Wu-Tang slander.” During the interview, Method Man spoke about being ready to “snuff” Joe, but the opposite ended up happening when the two hip-hop icons met. Method Man somehow ended up giving Joe his flowers. Method said,
“Now Joe, you don’t know this, but the whole time you were talking, I was gonna snuff you, but the reason why I didn’t, in that moment, was ’cause you said some real sh*t. Now, I don’t know exactly what it was word for word and sh*t, but it was definitely something that made me think in that moment, ‘Joe’s a very smart muthaf*cka. Chess, not checkers.'” Method Man continued,
“You a talented muthaf*cka. You don’t need to go this route.”
However, at the time, Joe reportedly still talked about the Wu-Tang. According to Method Man, later in the day, Joe did an interview or a freestyle, talking about Deck and Rae. The report says Joe got sniffed by a Wu-Tang member while doing a livestream as a result.
